They used to make them from Bosch 009 distributors, but I think those are finally out of production. The distributor is a bit too short and requires an extended gog (cannot be seen in the picture). The points were replaced with the Compufire 21100 module. For details, see the Compufire website.Some months ago, I ordered the ID405 from Centerline. It's their electronic ignition distributor that takes the place of the old points condenser unit. I ordered it because their distributor looks original but has the added benefit of being electronic (no gap adjustment, etc.) Centerline no longer has them and has no date on when they'll be available.
Here's my question. Are there any other good alternatives out there that will work well and look original and have a good advance curve?
Follow link here for Centerline's distributor if you want to read up on it.
I had mine modified by a guy that hops up VWs. All I had him do was to increase the total advance. I never bothered the springs as it seemed to work fine in my Alfetta.
